Sundays with Katherine
February 19th 2006
* KK joins and is greeted by everyone
~KK~ Hi, guys.
~KK~ Wait--what's this? Bynw-hospital?
~jemler~ a reverent silence fall across the hall
~Mistyck~ RD and Jemler: Paul also starred in the spin-off movie, Highlander: Endgame, and is as of 2005 filming the 5th Highlander movie entitled Highlander: The Source in Lithuania.
~RainbowDragon~ Bynw's mom is in the hospital
~the_Bee~ visiting his mom
*** KK Quit
* KK re-joins and is welcomed back by everyone
~Mistyck~ from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adrian_Paul
~the_Bee~ did we scare her of???!!!!
~KK~ Ack, I booted myself out. What's this, Bynw-hospital? (Can't read the last few letters.)
~Mistyck~ visiting his Mom
~the_Bee~ bynw's mom is in the hospital awaiting surgery
~KK~ Nothing too serious, I hope.
~the_Bee~ lung cancer :(
~Mistyck~ Per Tika (who seems to be away), they think they caught the lung cancer in time
~KK~ Yike! Entirely too much cancer going around.
~jemler~ My aunt had cancer on her brain.
~Mistyck~ very true. how are you doing Katherine?
~Wrengl~ i like shiral's plan to ban cancer
~KK~ Well, I spent several hours today reorganizing the website material. This will take a week or so, I suspect. I'm fine. I have a Gus on my lap, biting my hands when I try to type.
~Tika~ heya KK
~KK~ Hi, Tika.
~Tika~ yes Bynw is visiting marnin today
~RainbowDragon~ reorganizing the website as well as updating the information?
~the_Bee~ now, now Gus--licking, not biting
~KK~ Both. We're refining it, and losing 2 of the 3 versions. Takes up too much space, and is too hard to maintain.
~RainbowDragon~ ahhh, sounds good
~KK~ Licking is also distracting.
~Wrengl~ true but it is less painful than biting
~the_Bee~ but less panful--unless it's your eyelids
~KK~ Mostly, though, he tries to bite the rings and knuckles.
~Mistyck~ or claws digging in
~KK~ Mind you, I haven't yet started actually updating my bits--but at least I now know what I need to do.
~Tika~ heh Neko was doing something similar to my son's hands at marnin's house earlier when he was online there
~Mistyck~ that's always good :)
~Wrengl~ that is good
~KK~ wrengl! hurrah!
~Wrengl~ we had a great week in atlantic city, katherine, although I missed you last sunday!and all we lost there was my hair! tee hee i am nearly an egghead
~Mistyck~ lol Pat
~samuel~ How goes the hunt for a new home? have you decided on a bit north or back across the pond yet?
~slobbit~ bald is sexy
~Wrengl~ i am not the sexy type
~jemler~ why do you think Telly Savalas always said "Who loves ya baby?
~Mistyck~ everyone can be the sexy type Wrengl ;)
~slobbit~ there's no such thing as not sexy
~Wrengl~ but kathi suggested i should get a wig since i will still not have hair for worldcon or our alaska cruise after it
~slobbit~ so sez me A friend of mine did the scarf thing
~Tika~ you could get a pretty scarf, Wrengl
~slobbit~ she had rather a lot of them, and very stylish
~Wrengl~ and we did get a lot of work done on the fourteen chapters i've written so far
~Tika~ great minds... ;)
~Mistyck~ you can always do a Kashmiri head-dress thing :)
~slobbit~ yay for progress!
* ambush joins and is greeted by everyone
~the_Bee~ a turban
~Mistyck~ very cool Pat
~jemler~ Caught by Ambush
~Wrengl~ so far just crocheted hats kathi has made me
* Kelos_al-Hazar joins and is greeted by everyone
~ambush~ hiyas kk and gang
~slobbit~ I have uploaded my final Boskone report if anyone's interested
~Mistyck~ Bee: Kashmiri head-dress for women is VERY ornate :)
* Kelos_al-Hazar waves to the crowd and bows to KK.
~natlog~ turban trick I learned from a former boss: use a
shoulder pad on top of your head to make it look fuller
~Wrengl~ first I need to get used to wearing hats
~slobbit~ oh, I hate hats
~Wrengl~ so do i. even my bush hat spends most of it's time on my neck!
~the_Bee~ hats=winter headwarmers. winter wonderland
~KK~ Could always do a Minbari headdress....
~samuel~ babylon 5
~Mistyck~ Babylon 5
~jemler~ no, go Centauri!
~samuel~ nobody knows what ever happened to Babylon 4
~KK~ Not to mention 1,2,3.
~jemler~ It was sent back in time with Sinclair (aka Valen)
~Mistyck~ Ryan and I are watching Season Two of "Highlander"
~the_Bee~ I started getting scifi for a couple of weeks, but
then it stopped
~samuel~ if I recall.... 1, 2, 3 were destroyed by
sabatoge..... but I could be wrong since I haven't seen it since
~KK~ I was just watching the tail-end of Starship Troopers--still a great flick!
~Wrengl~ 1,2,3,and 4 were all lost due to a timewarp
~Wrengl~ well 4 went back in time to help with a war back in time
~jemler~ kk, wasn't Starship Trooperson Stargate SG-1on Friday?
~KK~ I never really followed that series, though I liked the episodes I saw.
~KK~ I dunno. It was just shown on RTE1.
~samuel~ later all. time for me to get back to my book.
** Everyone bids Samuel farewell.
~the_Bee~ I get SG-1 and SGA a year late in syndication
~natlog~ yes, they mentioned Starship troopers on stargate friday night
* samuel Quit (Quit: see, I'm slowing down a little bit.....)
~KK~ Ah. Heinlein really wrote a good one in that.
~the_Bee~ I hardly get any cable channels. I need cable just
to get the broadcastr channels :(
~KK~ On the other hand, I recently reread his Friday, which is...strange.
~jemler~ I like Turner Classic Movies.
~Kelos_al-Hazar~ Cable is (IMHO) a ripoff.
~Wrengl~ heinlien's early books were often really good!
~KK~ Not if you don't get good terrestrial reception.
~Kelos_al-Hazar~ (Locally, I was paying close to $2 a channel,
and that was ridiculous.
~Wrengl~ yes friday is strange and so is stranger in a strange land, although it is decades since i read that
~the_Bee~ I've been reading Nancy Kress's books lately
~KK~ Actually, satellite is even better.
~Wrengl~ we like cable
~Kelos_al-Hazar~ "The Moon is a Harsh Mistress" is good, too...and the source of "TANSTAAFL" LOL
~jemler~ I've been reading Jeffrey Deaver. Great crime stories.
~the_Bee~ my building doesn't allow satellites--nothing on the roof or outside walls
~Kelos_al-Hazar~ (There Ain't No Such Thing As A Free Lunch)
~Wrengl~ i am waiting to get the new sneaky pie brown mystery
~the_Bee~ I love those!
~Wrengl~ me two i also like the susan connant dog lover mysteries
~ambush~ oh, i havent gotten much written with my fanfic yet...but i'm getting close to the first three or four pages being done
~jemler~ me almost three
~KK~ Look for a quirky little novel called Kitty and the Midnight Hour, about a radio talk-show host who gets call-ins from supernatural creatures and is, herself, a werewolf. It's really clever.
~Wrengl~ she knows her dog show/performance culture
~Mistyck~ very cool, ambush
~Wrengl~ i will
~ambush~ neko says 'hi' kk
~Kelos_al-Hazar~ The only disadvantage to satellite is that if electrical properties in the air are peaky (common in Alabama and Florida) you get lousy signal strength. Cable-run length makes a huge
~KK~ Give Neko a scritch for me.
~Wrengl~ i read a midnight louie mystery last year set at a science fiction convention in las vegas
~the_Bee~ Rita may Brown has another series involving hunting, horses and hounds--Sister Jane Arnold
~ambush~ he just looked up at the screen, pawed my hand, and meowed...
~Mistyck~ heehee smart kitty :)
~Wrengl~ i don't need to start any more series i have a biography of stonewall jackson to finish then one of te lawrence to finish
~the_Bee~ I read a Midnight Louie parody of the Chthulhu stories
* Kelos_al-Hazar is still soldiering along on writing his (now-two volume) novel...
~Wrengl~ then fiery cross which i've been reading for a couple of years or more
~ambush~ well, he's whining about something...probably my choice of tv station
~Mistyck~ what are you watching?
~ambush~ rush hour 2
~Wrengl~ have you fed him, ambush?
~KK~ Well, it's just been changing of the cats in my lap, and Sasha is telling me that it's bedtime--which sound sliske a good idea, since I spent about 3 hours on my hands and knees today, staining the ends of the stair treads.
*** Everyone bids Katherine farewell, good night, good staining, and a great week.
~slobbit~ how the heck does one pronounce "Chthulhu"?
~Wrengl~ that could be the problem, you know
~Mistyck~ ahh..well, he probably doesn't like the movie then
* Kelos_al-Hazar needs to read "Fiery Cross" and the new book...
~ambush~ yes, i've fed him
~slobbit~ thanks, KK
~Wrengl~ probably not going to read the next, not sure, although i have heard it said it is better
~Tika~ niters, happy staining :)
~KK~ Take care--and watch the Ice Dancing finals tomorrow from the Olympics. Tonight, nearly everyone fell down. It was amazing, though there were some good programs.
~jemler~ i1 still don't know how they get ice to dance
~Kelos_al-Hazar~ Heh, Ms. Gabaldon might be able to give me a few warnings about how much 1200+ pages costs to duplicate at Kinkos'!
~Mistyck~ lol Jemler
~RainbowDragon~ KK, please say a prayer for marnin
* KK steps onto her Portal, waves goodnight, and disappears in a shower of green sparkles.
~Wrengl~ yes indeed

~KK~ Prayers for all who need them! Nighters. (Quit)
